CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland Police Officers and RTA officials are investigating after a teenager is stabbed on a bus.

The assault happened around 8:00 Tuesday evening on the #26 heading westbound at West 25th and Detroit.

RTA officials say the teenager, Derek Watkins, confronted a 52-year-old man over drugs.

According to the police report, Arthur Fredd had bought some marijuana on Public Square.

After the purchase, Fredd says Watkins and two other teens approached him demanding some of the pot. Fredd refused and got on the RTA bus. The juveniles followed him.

When Watkins approached him again on the bus, in a threatening manner, Fredd says he stabbed him in the stomach.

Watkins was rushed to Metro where he had emergency surgery.

Fredd is charged with assault.

Watkins friends are also charged in the incident.

Jarriall Smith is charged with criminal damaging for punching a door on the bus and breaking a small panel of glass. Ricky Johnson is charged with attempted felonious assault and tampering with evidence for pulling out a box cutter and attempting to defend Watkins...who is his brother.
